The heart that cares: Giving the love season a meaning


It begins with you; be kind.

  I grew up in a typical Yoruba (western part of Nigeria) home and my family enjoyed entertaining guests in their modest apartment. I vividly remember watching my parents busily preparing for their guests making sure everything was just right down to the perfectly made local dishes. Finally, the doorbell would ring and the guests would arrive. The welcoming included warm greetings and display of love that even the blind can feel. The picture of family and friends gathered around the table sharing stories, laughter, and eating a bountiful meal was a familiar happening in our home. My family used the gift of hospitality to bless others.
When you have the chance to be kind and to be right…….be kind.

The heart that cares will extend love not only to the people around him/her but also to the less priviledged.

Kindness in words creates confidence.
Kindness in thinking creates profoundness.
Kindness in giving creates love.

Here a few ways I fathomed will help you show kindness:

1. Speak gently, always being positive and lifting others.
2. Help people, with no thought of reward.
3. Overlook others’ mistakes; have great patience with imperfections.
4. Forgive easily and quickly.
5. Put the needs and desires of others before your own.
6. Share the good things in your life freely.
7. Be genuinely interested in the welfare of others.
8. Give of yourself–especially your time.
9. Be polite and courteous.
10. Share another’s burden.
11. Listen patiently.
12. Set a good example.
13. Resist the urge to talk about others unkindly.
14. Treat others the way you’d like to be treated.
15. Be fair and honest at all times.
16. Try to love people unconditionally.
Showing Kindness, love or caring for people;   a burden or blessing?
 “Wherever there is a human being, there is a chance for a kindness.”
Whenever people say words of kindness that bring joy to our heart like, ‘I CARE A GREAT DEAL ABOUT YOU’, ‘I LOVE U SO DEARLY’, ‘YOU HAVE A VERY SPECIAL PLACE IN MY HEART, to us at that moment, nothing else matters. But the question is, for how long? Because the truth is that people change and so do their feelings. While some will be overwhelmed and burdened by giving, caring, and showing affection some just feel awe-inspiring doing it.
Caring is a strong positive emotion of regard and affection; it shouldn’t be for our loved ones alone but also to the less privileged, children and physically challenged. Looking for ways to bless others with love that is both patient and kind can make this Valentine’s Day extra special. Find someone other than those close to you and give them something that will last eternally. This is what attracted me to the Valentine project of Junior Chamber International (Nigeria)l-Lagos Royale Chapter, this chapter of the organization that believe in service to humanity is the best work of life and has taking it upon themselves to show love to the less privileged in the society by using the social network media like Facebook, Tweeter ,broadcast messages on Blackberry et all  to call individuals, corporate organizations and government alike to show love this valentine season to the less privileged.
No act of kindness no matter how small is wasted, this course I have joined, what about you?
Kindness in giving creates love.
Happy Valentine’s Day.
